Roy Keane tore into Liverpool describing their defence as ‘laughable’ and says they can forget about winning the Champions League following the 2-2 draw with Sevilla.
The Reds squandered a 2-1 lead and missed a penalty as they drew their opening group stage game at Anfield.
Both of the Spaniards goals came from mistakes, with the equaliser coming after the hosts’ defence switched off at a throw-in with 18 minutes to go.
Keane told ITV: “This sums up Liverpool in a nutshell, and why they’re not going to win any big prizes.
“Just switching off from a throw-in, leads to the equaliser. In such an important game, at such an important moment.
“Experienced players just switching off. It must drive the manager crazy as it’s just schoolboy defending.
“It’s the easiest part of football, just switching on. Liverpool did all the hard stuff really well, in terms of creating chances, pace, power and quality going forward, but Liverpool can’t seem to do the easy things.
“Liverpool can forget about winning the Champions League. I mean, they should have enough to get through the group, but in the knockout stages against the Real Madrids and all these boys, they’ll be laughing at Liverpool.”
